We describe a relatively simple method for the identification of common motifs in DNA sequences that are known to share a common function. The input sequences are unaligned and there is no information regarding the position or orientation of the motif. Often such data exists for protein-binding regions, where genetic or molecular information that defines(More)
Interactions of ligands with recombinant cholinergic binding sites have been monitored by NMR. Monitoring the selective T1 relaxation of the protons of acetylcholine, nicotine, d-tubocurarine, and gallamine reveals specific binding to peptide constructs containing the alpha 183-204 or shorter sequences of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor of Torpedo,(More)
Interactions of four ligands of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor with genetically engineered peptides have been studied by NMR. A recombinant cholinergic binding site was prepared as a fusion protein between a truncated form of the bacterial protein trpE and a peptide corresponding to the sequence alpha 184-200 from the Torpedo californica receptor.(More)
